The Department of Health has been notified of 1,189 new cases of Covid-19, nationally.
There are 95 people in hospital who have tested positive for coronavirus, down one since yesterday. Of these, 23 are in ICU, a rise of one compared to yesterday.
There were 1,430 positive cases reported in Northern Ireland today and no further deaths. A decision on easing most restrictions there next week has been delayed by Stormont ministers.
Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn, said: “The Delta variant is now dominant across the EU and, in recent weeks, we have noticed a sharp increase in the level of travel-related cases of Covid-19.
“Only those who are fully vaccinated or who have recovered from Covid-19 in the last 180 days should be considering international travel at this time.
“If you have recently returned to Ireland and have any symptoms of Covid-19, including fever, cough, headache, sore throat or a blocked or runny nose then please self-isolate and get tested without delay.”
